Bop to the Top and 10.5 mile run

*Updated: Look at these pictures. They're hilarious! I like to smile for the camera guy. :)


Well the Bop to the Top went well and I finished in 6:57 minutes, which is about what I expected. After the first 7 flights I had to start walking. In the beginning I wasn't using the rails to help me until I saw the guy behind me doing it. I felt like I was cheating...but everyone was doing it. Although I enjoyed myself, I probably won't do it again. I'm surprisingly/thankfully not sore at all but perhaps I will be tomorrow.

After the race I went and ran 10.5 miles outside at a 7:55 minute pace. It felt pretty good. Then I did 15 minutes of abs.

I just saw a commercial for the same type of race here in Milwaukee. I don't think I'll sign up but it made me think of you...hope things are well!

Hola Clarita,
Te felicito. Donde fuiste para subir tantas gradas? En Detroit hay una carrera de setenta pisos en el edificio mas alta de la ciudad. Yo intentaba entrar la carrera, perrrrrro... la entrada era tan caro que yo calculaba que hubiera resultado mas efectivo correr una distancia mas larga.

Tambien qiusiera preguntarte una cosita sobre tus inquietudes de acuerdo correindo entre los rieles del ferrocarril; si tu no quieres que el mundo te cree loca, como es que pones una foto de tus pobres pies hecho una lastima encima de este blog?

Bill

Thanks Heather! Good to hear from you.

And thanks, Brian.

Bill- Gracias a ti. La carrera fue en el edificio de "OneAmerica" en el centro de Indy. En Detroit- setenta pisos??? Ay ay ay, no podría hacerlo yo.

Jajajaja! Me encantó tu pregunta de mis pies!! Tienes muchísima razón y no tengo sentido!! :) Espero que estés bien.
